Reading the other reviews leaves me a bit surprised. The smell of this tea won me over immediately, so I bought 2oz to take home and sample in the mornings. I wasn’t let down.
It is a bit spicy. You don’t get a purely fruity taste. But I like my tea to taste like tea and not juice. The spice isn’t overbearing, it’s just subtle enough to add to the sweet flavor that tastes like a mix of mango and grapefruit. I’ll admit the sweet taste isn’t well defined, as you likely won’t be reminded of actual mango at all.
Overall, if you like pu-ehr and want to try a sweet variety, give this a shot.
I tend to steep around 6 minutes and use just a bit of sweetener in each cup. This is one you have to be careful not to make too strong of oversteep, as it can get sour.
